[Solved] Host in error state, monitoring issue

Hey guys!

I have a host that is showing an error state, and vms are in unknown. As a precaution, I moved VMs over to a new node, I can’t tell if they actually moved. I have a feeling that there are hung processes on libvirt, but I’m not sure. I’m hesitant to restart libvirtd in case the vms didn’t actually move.


You try login to the host and run “virsh list”. If it shows the output of the list of VM, then it might be some process hanging. Check that and kill.

Does oned.log show anything useful?

Thanks for all the help! This was due to the mentioned PolicyKit bug found in another thread.
